Hi masters,

I'm a new with odoo and very interested with the system and technology.


I have a requirement about the customize the workflow (MRP).

In my cases the flow on my client (factory) a little different with odoo default. For example, from Sales Order directly into the production (Manufacturing Order) without passing through procurement.

The question is how to edit the workflow ? Can I get step by step information ?

Hi Doddy Prima

  •     First and foremost thing in odoo is dont try to modify in forthe configuration
  •     Try to modify using Xml, workflow can be modified using xml here is the sample code based on this you
  •     First you need to determine the xml which describes the work flow in that particular module. In your case it is mrp_workflow.xml .
  • You need to modify the code based on your need.
  • for eg <record id="prod_trans_draft_picking" model="workflow.transition">
                <field name="act_from" ref="prod_act_draft"/>
                <field name="act_to" ref="prod_act_confirmed"/>
                <field name="signal">button_confirm</field>
                <field name="condition">True</field>
  • In the above code you have to edit act_from and act_to , in order to alter.

Hi Aci,

Thank for the information. I have been on "sale.order.basic" workflow before and see the diagram.

But I have no idea to editing. How to pass the procurement step, when "sales order" created then next step is directly to "manufacturing order"  

Thank you :)


Remove the nodes for procurement & put the functions in that to manufacturing node
